Black & White moods

I read somewhere that “if colour does not add anything to a picture then you should go black & white” For me black & white just has that extra bit of atmosphere/feel to it that makes it special. I love looking at the classic photo books of street photographers with their high contrast B&W photos. 

When I take pictures I try to get my subjects back lit. Here I got a lucky shot of a dog playing in the water

On a hike a few days back I made a few to get the dark forest feel – best place to find one self when stressed by work etc.

My favourite camera for street is my little Ricoh GR – small, light and powerful.
